is there any legs to the Icardi to United rumour, Eds?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any rumour but don’t hold your breath.}

1.) 17 Sep 2018 21:23:40
Thanks Ed, he’d be a good signing, a young captain too. Will a good Director of Football mean we’ll unearth players of a similar caliber? Or Will he just bring negotiating for already high calibre players a smoother process?

{Ed002's Note - Icardi has hardly been unearthed. The unearthing of players comes from scouts normally.}

2.) 17 Sep 2018 21:34:58
your right, I suppose time will tell what a Director of Football will actually bring to the club, more drama likely, I think we’ve been a tabloids dream the past years.

3.) 18 Sep 2018 11:55:48
Do you mean Dybala op? He was linked in the rags as a swap with Pogba.

{Ed002's Note - I would not worry yourself about Dybala either.}

4.) 18 Sep 2018 12:38:23
Tabloids will make anything up with United's name. If we manage to win our CL match tomorrow, I can totally imagine the next day headlines to be " United harasses Young boys in a shocking scandal ".

5.) 18 Sep 2018 12:27:01

Do we still hold an interest in Savic from Lazio. Pogba most likely to go and i think Savic will be a good replacement.

{Ed002's Note - The interest will still be there but the chances of signing the player are slim and I expect the club will need to look elsewhere for a solution when Pogba goes Singh.}

6.) 18 Sep 2018 12:27:01

7.) 18 Sep 2018 18:46:30

Thanks for the reply.

Can i ask about the players we are going to target instead of Savic? .

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United are not making any efforts regarding a Pogba replacement at this time but if they were and assuming the manager remains unchanged then it would be likely the targets would remain the same as they have been with the club considering the likes of Toni Kroos and Lorenzo Pellegrini. Gedson Fernandes is still too young in my view but Mr Mourinho is keen. Maybe the toxics can see now the damage they done when the meeting was cancelled regarding a move for Saul Niguez - who someone associated with the club will still like to persuade to move to Manchester? Maybe Sam Allardyce will have his own views? We'll see but right now the club are not making a Pogba replacement any sort of priority and won't unless there is a push for something to happen in January.}

8.) 18 Sep 2018 19:11:33
Thanks for the reminder Ed002, player i was thinking of was Saul as i wanted to ask Ed001 if it's possible for him to write up a player profile on him. Lovely lovely player he is, also any chance we can sign Lionel Messi Ed? 😂😂 About time we get someone in to score freekicks👀.

{Ed001's Note - added him to the list. Wonderful player, I have been raving about him for years but no one else seemed to agree that he was special until now.}

9.) 18 Sep 2018 19:32:52
I really sat up and took notice when he scored the solo goal vs Bayern in 15/ 16, was exquisite, skill, guile, strength, precision, he is brilliant. If he played for Barca/ Madrid instead of Atletico maybe he would of been raved about much earlier Ed.

{Ed001's Note - yeah fair point. I remember him in youth football looking a class apart and wondering why he was only at Atleti, so you make a good point, they are overshadowed there.}

10.) 18 Sep 2018 20:03:39
Also seems to work very hard of the ball, rounded package. Fits in with Simeone perfectly, would have been nice if the meeting was held. lol.

11.) 18 Sep 2018 22:25:26
Is gedson Fernandes at sporting or am I thinking of someone with a similar name?

{Ed002's Note - You are obviously thinking of someone else.}

12.) 19 Sep 2018 11:33:32
Dear me we would be in trouble if Mr Allardyce is in th3 reckoning.

13.) 20 Sep 2018 01:22:13
Yes, this is something that is really worrying me a lot. Ed02 keeps mentioning Allardyce but i just don't understand how or why are we considering a very, i mean very average manager. Its just wrong if they want a British manager how about Howe?



29 Aug 2018 20:03:18
Is there any developments on Pogba’s possible transfer from United?


1.) 30 Aug 2018 01:44:37
I think its a case of when, not if unfortunately, SAF was right about his agent for sure, when he does go, he can take his roller and his chauffer and shove it.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 10:30:14
If it was good enough for Fergie it’s good enough for me was my barometer on things so if he wasn’t fussed on Pogba leaving back then it says a lot to me. Before we signed him I thought he was vastly overrated and he’s done nothing to change that opinion. If Pogba was sold in this window without a replacement would we really be that much worse off, I don’t think so, Herrera offers much more in a game certainly in terms of effort. Fred also looks very energetic and I know effort isn’t everything but effort is more than Pogba offers. We’ve been waiting for how long for Pogba to step up, I’m not sure we will see it.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 10:39:49
I think Fergie might have got it right first time around. he's probably sitting there now saying 'I told you so' 🙈.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 10:53:46
I think Pereira, could do really well in the more advanced midfield role, good range of passing, can beat a man and has a good shot on him.

5.) 30 Aug 2018 11:30:36
WRD, according to NC and Jred they watched him loads in serie a and he was brilliant.

6.) 30 Aug 2018 11:31:02
i agree tot66, pereira seems to have a level head on him too, i think he could be a real asset, i also think gomes could play in that no 10 role. I’m hoping Pogba will go to be honest, i’d much prefer out present youth to develop and look at him as a lesson learned, great talent is nothing without desire and integrity.

7.) 30 Aug 2018 11:32:41
Well we have one more day so we shall see. I’m sad he might leave, only because of the promise he has which he has only shown in glimpses with us. If we can recoup what we paid for him then I see no reason to block the move. Herrera is great, and Andreas could step up. Lingard has shown for us and England he can be a very effective midfielder.

Maybe the game in Spain or Italy is more suitable to his style?

8.) 30 Aug 2018 11:40:23
Maybe be was brilliant for the best team in the Italian league but he’s not been for United, the top players play well in any team.

9.) 30 Aug 2018 12:00:16
I'm not sure he was brilliant but he was good and was excellent in the WC .
He is far better than his current form for United would suggest.

Fergy said many times and in fact it's in his book that he wanted to keep pogba but the lad wouldn't sign a contract .
Don't forget we never sold him he left.

10.) 30 Aug 2018 12:37:59
I think his World Cup form is overplayed a bit, he was good in parts especially the final for that half and was ok in the tournament but was as absent for France as he was for united at many times.
He’s had a handful of good games for United but he’s never reached the level everyone says he can, maybe it’s not in him too, maybe he’s at his level.
Yeah he left for free, Fergie never moved heaven and earth to keep him tho. Overall, if he left today I don’t think we will miss him even without a replacement.

11.) 30 Aug 2018 12:47:35
Fergie wanted to keep him, people have short memories.

How about you get behind Pogba (our best player bar DDG) the same way you are urging us tk get behind Jose? He is a young guy who is trying our best and has the ability. Various coaches have had him playing like a world-beater, maybe when we have a different one he will be back to top form.

Certainly, there are no upsides to selling him as it is too late to replace him and there are few midfielders who have talent like he does at his age and the others who do would cost the heaven and earth.

12.) 30 Aug 2018 13:00:08
Fergy said he was offered a sizable contract, but he was always going to leave.
I'm sure the ed said at the time he was always leaving.

{Ed001's Note - of course he was going to leave, he refused to allow Fergie's son to be his agent.}

13.) 30 Aug 2018 13:13:13
I'm sure ed2 covered why pogba was always going to leave at the time.

{Ed001's Note - no idea but that is why he left and why Fergie refused to play him.}

14.) 30 Aug 2018 13:25:01
I though 02 said he wouldn't play him because he wouldn't sign a new contract .
I'm sure he called it 12 month before hand . Lot of debate on here at about given pogba playing time etc but ed no point the player and family want a move .

Not that it matters really, either way it doesn't sound like it was a purely football decision.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what Ed02 said, I am telling you why it happened. No youth player got played unless they joined the agency Fergie told them to join.}

15.) 30 Aug 2018 16:21:47
I get behind any player that pulls a shirt on for this club but if they are not good enough or don’t try for that shirt then I am not going to blindly follow them. There are too many that fall into the above categories at United and as for Pogba if he’s ‘the best at United bar ddg’ then he needs to step up and prove he is, so far he hasn’t.

16.) 30 Aug 2018 16:47:11
That’s an interesting snippet of info ed01, would the asu’s agency’s have taken as much advantage as the likes of raiola?

{Ed001's Note - Raiola gets better moves for his clients and looks after them like they are family.}

17.) 30 Aug 2018 17:48:44
is that a good reason to hate him or what!? thanks for all the info Ed.

18.) 30 Aug 2018 21:40:34
Most definitely able to play at a higher level. I just question his attitude and application when him me aren't going for him, like now.

Massive shame because he can do anything he wants.

19.) 31 Aug 2018 13:10:16
I thought Man United had supposedly broken off dealings with Fergie Jnr as an agent back in 2004. Was this not the case? Or did that only apply to first teamers?



01 Sep 2017 11:36:34
Did Bruno Amorim actually sign for Us?


{Ed004's Note - Doesn't look like it}



16 May 2017 07:40:25
Didn't hear his name mentioned in the Sharopod, do we hold any interest in Morata?


{Ed002's Note - A player Mourinho likes, but not at this time.}

1.) 16 May 2017 11:42:40
thanks Ed.

2.) 16 May 2017 14:27:01
Thank goodness. Much better strikers out there.

3.) 16 May 2017 23:05:35
I'd take him. That is all.



24 Apr 2015 11:43:26
Any interest in yarmelenko, from us or anyone else?


{Ed002's Note - Dynamo Kyiv accept that Yarmolenko will likely move this summer with strong interest from Fiorentina, Inter, Valencia, Napoli and Dortmund. Bayer Leverkusen and Manchester City have dropped their interest but PSG are considering Yarmolenko as a possible option to replace Lavezzi this summer and it is possible that Spurs will look to him again.}

1.) 24 Apr 2015 12:11:28
Where's Lavezzi heading Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Try the European pages.}

don’t know if you’ve been asked on any of the other pages, but i’d like to hear the ed’s opinions on what’s happening in the Fai at the moment.


{Ed002's Note - Aside from the issuette about Delaney's loan I am not aware of anything "going on" - and it is nothing to do with MU.}

1.) 14 Apr 2019 13:51:10
i know it’s nothing to do with United, and there’s far more than just the loan. He was getting the organisation to pay for stays in hotels with Pillow menus, using the Fai credit card to buy clothing, exactly the same thing he claimed the previous chief did. I mean, does this happen anywhere else in the world?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

2.) 14 Apr 2019 14:09:03
thanks for clearing that up Ed.



12 Feb 2019 20:53:54
I’ll get slated for this but. it’s nights like this you’d love some of José’s guile.


1.) 12 Feb 2019 21:05:41
Just like Sevilla.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 22:07:29
People got carried away with the last few weeks, I thought we would go toe to toe but it just proves we are a long way off still, that why there should have been no talk of ole getting the job in the summer.

3.) 12 Feb 2019 22:07:38
Got beat by a better team with a squad full of quality.
We also didn't play to our maximum so lots of work to do.
Not sure anybody can question the team selection but its on to chelsea now i hope we got our players back soon.
Pogba was lucky not to be sent off in the 1st half.
Poor ref imo but for both teams.

4.) 12 Feb 2019 22:20:26
Bad refereeing all round, but the timing was crucial. Their full back should have been off before they opened the scoring. Still a better team, tho.

5.) 12 Feb 2019 22:34:14
The past 2 months for all of us have been fantastic. For the fans, the players and the management. Its taken us from a terrible place and gradually brought us back to the mentality that we should have. The belief that we can beat anybody and anyone whilst playing the edge of the seat footy that we are renowned for playing.
Tonight was an eye opener. I think psg where the better side but the ref was a disgrace and they have a genuine shout at winning the cl. i think they are that touch above us at the minute. Yes we lost and the second half we got schooled but i'm definitely in a much better place than start of December.

6.) 12 Feb 2019 22:56:47

No talk on him getting the job in the summer because we got beat by a better team, his first defeat in 12 games, talk about making rash decisions based on one game. I’m not saying he should get it but tonight doesn’t show he shouldn’t get it just like some of the other games don’t show that he should.

7.) 12 Feb 2019 22:58:41
Of course red tash. I agree with you totally.
Our squad is painfully short on quality and down to the last few years we are very very short on big match experience at the highest level. I thought young was exposed badly tonight. Their midfield 2 shackled our3 very well.
The ref was poor. But pogba should have been sent off in the 1st half along with their cb kimpepe?
All is not lost still plenty to play for and it will be interesting to see how ole and the players cope with hitting their first setback.

I’m glad we’re finally getting back some of the united family, Moyes’ biggest error was getting rid of those who knew the lay of the land. It’s always been like that with United, ex players have a role to play and there’s a legacy among the coaches, Brian Kidd, Mike Phelan, now Michael Carrick and Nicky Butt.
It’s going to be tough to get the same Philosophy flowing through the club, but i think this is a good place to start.

Felix went to Atletico based on potential for €130m, Lukaku in the right environment has the potential to score 30+ goals a season. What message does it send if we sell players with that type of potential for less than market value? Especially when clubs are interested in pogba, who only fulfilled a fraction of his potential last season.

In fairness, that was one of Huddersfield’s tactics, mbenza is very quick, and Anytine they could they tried releasing him. Dalot was on the back foot very quickly after an attack broke down. Great lesson for the Lad.

{Ed002's Note - I would not make such assumptions. Perhaps he is able to look at two players at the same time?}

God love your patience Ed002, I think everyone has to take a breath and just let things happen, I’m bored of the incessant questions now, I just want to be surprised by what’s ahead.
Knowing who we are after isn’t everything, Knowing we are working hard on still trying to improve the team is exciting and if we’re working on “many other players” as Ed002 said, perhaps the one we get will surprise us and fill another position adequately as two of the signings have. But having to be constantly updated like a baby who needs his soother is just pathetic.
There’s three more questions more or less the same as this below if you want to scroll down.

very good piece on sky about longstaff. Well worth a read, you can see why solskjaer would want him. Not comparing him to Bryan Robson, but he might be worth the money if he keeps going the way he is.
